Team changes from 2008–09Edit

ViOn Zlaté Moravce were relegated after finishing the 2008–09 season in 12th and last place. They were replaced by 2008–09 1. Liga champions Inter Bratislava.

While the First League promotees will carry the name of the former Slovak champions, the team will actually play its home matches in Senica after a merger with fourth-division side FK Senica. An intended name change for the 2009–10 season was filed too late to be accepted[citation needed], so the team will be renamed at the beginning of the following season.

In another name change, FC Artmedia Petržalka were renamed MFK Petržalka effective 1 July 2009.[1]
